Jarrod Saltalamacchia: Avoids Arbitration With Red Sox

Rotowire.com
Update: Saltalamacchia and the Red Sox avoided arbitration Thursday by agreeing to a one-year, $4.5 million contract, WEEI Boston reports.

Recommendation: Saltalamacchia hit just .222 last season, but he also smacked a career-high 25 home runs and knocked in 59 runs over 212 games. There has been talk that the Red Sox are willing to move Saltalamacchia, but assuming he stays on the roster, he will head into next season as the team's top catcher.
